Matthew Arnold, MSc
Technical Advisor, Safe Water Optimization Tool
Matt started working as a Technical Advisor at The Dahdaleh Institute of Global Health Research in June 2018. Prior to moving to Canada recently he worked for Médecins Sans Frontières as a Water and Sanitation Advisor at HQ level and as field staff since 2003. This work necessitated supporting and implementing water supply and sanitation projects in all types of humanitarian emergencies – from natural disasters and disease outbreaks to population displacements. With an educational background (MSc) in Hydrogeology and a keen interest in Public Health and water quality he is looking to further investigate and research issues in these domains with a view to improving the quality of water supplied in humanitarian responses.
